A very disappointing experience. I chose it because it looked nice online and thought the location was very special. We were in the brasserie which in fact was just an extension of the bar area. Service was slow. Food shockingly overpriced and not anything more than I could cook at home. £15 for a mediocre burger served with nothing. Had to pay extra for some chips! A cheap tiny risotto in what looked like a cereal bowl which was eaten in 30 seconds it was so small. Two baskets of bread cost £8. Feel conned and sad it was my son’s 18 birthday meal.

Very poor service, sat for 5 mins then had to ask for menus and then for the wine list. The lady who sat us at our table should have handed these to us. Instead she chose to stand at her desk waiting for someone to walk through the door! I’ve dined here many times over the last few years and always enjoyed it but this time has put me off returning.

The food, service and ambience are all great. The OpenTable set menu is quite limited. I was surprised that the only meat main course option was a croque monsieur. It was an amazing croque monsieur and tasted fabulous, but not what I was expecting as a main for a special meal.

Having a cocktail included made the meal great value and the apple martini was fabulous.

Took my mum and Dad out for Mother’s day and really loved the three course brunch menu. The quality of food was consistently great, and the service struck a good balance of attentiveness and giving us space. Would recommend.

Visits by the waiting staff to our table too frequent and therefore intrusive. £3.50 for four semi-dry slices of bread was ridiculous. However, nice ambience and the staff were well meaning.

It was not the first time we went to this restaurant, but after this dinner I don’t think I will go back again. Service was really poor, just thinking to leave...We went for the menu and they didn’t have all the dishes available, so we didn’t have too much to choose. We need to remind them several times to get the drinks...It was a special occasion with friends, so I felt really embarrassed.

It may have been that I had developed an impression of Le Pont de la Tour from walking past it and looking online, but I'm afraid it was quite different to how I expected it to be. The staff were wonderful, amiable, and prompt - I commend them. The food was enjoyable but not of the quality I was expecting. Suffice to say I will be returning but it won't be a main choice for the area.

Good food, although the starters could have been more exciting. Pre-dinner cocktails were excellent. This place has, as the name indicates, a superb view of Tower Bridge and it is definitely their USP. Service was brilliant up to the moment when my friend had 4 glasses of wine accidentally tipped all over her but the complimentary champagne and the fullsome apologies did help to assuage her feelings! The outdoor terrace is cosy.

There is a really lovely ambience to the bar and grill, relaxed and very comfortable. We had the Evening Standard menu which was excellent value for money . The mussels were delicious. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly and helped to make our meal an even more enjoyable experience.
I will definitely return another time.

We went to Le Pont de la Tour for brunch on Sunday. It was a special get together for friends and we paid the additional £17 for the bottomless mimosa/prosecco.
Service was outstanding . The maitre d' was knowldgeable and very helpful in recommending dishes and combinations and our waitress was friendly and efficient (especially in topping up our glasses which were never left more than A few sips 'empty'!)
The food was tasty and plentiful, we all enjoyed our dishes. Overall, it was a really excellent brunch experience and we will definitely return.

Really nice location and venue with a great view of Tower Bridge. Staff were all very friendly. It was very quiet but probably because we went on a Wednesday therefore not much ambience. Other than that great, and will definitely be returning on a weekend!

The food was very disappointing. We went for the prix fixe menu, and the chicken liver parfait to start was OK, but the portion miniscule. The main course of moules frites was dreadful - the sauce so salty it was inedible, the frites soggy, and half the moules just empty shells. The brownie dessert was OK, but no more than in inch square.

The wine was expensive and disappointing.

Service was slow- it took an hour for our main course to arrive.

All in all, very disappointing - in particular because the proper restaurant was, on previous visits, quite good.

Great value pre-theatre menu in the bar. French food is one of our faves and the wine was delicious. It's definitely the sort of place where you want to treat yourself to champagne, oysters and cocktails! If we'd had more time we definitely would have had a third course but had a show to get to. Can imagine the terrace overlooking the water would be lovely in warmer weather. Overall, would recommend.

This was a family celebration for our mum’s birthday. The menu was excellent and everyone enjoyed their choice and thought the food was outstanding. Add to that the free flowing Mimosa and the friendly and laid back atmosphere at such an amazing place, this was the perfect place for our celebrations.

We had the set menu and though the options were limited, we were both happy with the selection. The portions were very generous, particularly the starters and a huge crème brulé. The cocktail was a welcome addition to the set menu, meaning we only needed a half-bottle of wine (our only a la carte addition, from a decent selection)

We took our family to Pont de la Tour for an evening meal as they wanted to eat by the river. The views are always spectacular from this place. We had the 3 course menu for £25 which was good value but the main courses a little small. Good value wine list and excellent service.
